No matter the occasion, you want to show your friends, family, coworkers and acquaintances a great time when you throw a party. You want it to be one of those bashes that people are still reminiscing about ten years later while they're at a seriously lame party thrown by someone else. Your favorite musical geniuses would surely take any party up a few notches, but at what cost?
Lady Gaga knows how to turn the heat up. The moment she steps on stage, your guests will stop all small talk and head to the dance floor. This life-changing experience will only cost you a million dollars. Try not to blow your budget with that one!
Back in 2005, Christina Aguilera performed at a Russian billionaire's wedding. She got $3.6 million to belt out some of the couple's favorite tunes. The best part? She wasn't alone! She opened for Whitney Houston! Talk about a memorable evening!
Mrs. Jay Z is obviously going to charge a pretty penny for her private concerts. She went to Haiti and performed for Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. She got a million bucks for the gig, but gave it all to charity when she found out who the concert was for. If you just need to have a member of Destiny's Child sing your favorite song at your party try Kelly Rowland, who goes for less than $50,000.
You're livin' on a prayer if you think Jon Bon Jovi is an affordable act for your event. Naturally, rocking out with Bon Jovi would be a legendary feat, but the fee will be over a million dollars. Worth it? If you're a billionaire!
Want to go back in time and add a little soul to your event? You can hire the "King of Blues," B.B. King. It'll cost you up to half a million dollars, but you'll be able to tell the story of how you were serenaded by B.B. King on your wedding day for the rest of your life. That's priceless.
Ready to throw in the towel on entertainment for your big event? Don't be. It may cost your life savings (or much, much more) to book the real thing, but there are plenty of celebrity impersonators for hire, and local bands are talented, professional, and will guarantee you and your guests a fun time. Save that cash for a down payment on your mansion.
